I always fold the side pocket, when using worsted cloth. When using non-worsted cloth, I may reluctantly eliminate the fold, if requested to do so.

If you don't fold the cloth, it puts a lot of...

It comes down to budget. If the club does not mind spending the money, go with Simonis or Championship Tour Edition. For replacement rails, you may be able to have Ridgeback rails produce them.

There is always the chance that the cushion rubber was cut at an improper angle, even from the factory. There is also the possibility that the wood behind the facings is beat up. This happens from...

The facings aren't your problem. It's the angles of the cut on your rails.

Please don't mess with the slate.. The best way to adjust the pocket difficulty is by adjusting the rail angles. It will be more expensive, but you won't ruin the table. Cutting slate is always an...

Probably not.. 3M-90 is more expensive. If you want to improve margins, you should use roll-on glue. If you don't care about the couple of extra dollars per table, and you prefer ease-of-use and...

9' table, 860HR: I typically stretch 1 5/8" across the width. I use less stretch across the width, which allows a tighter stretch along the length (as it should be). The length stretch is not as...

I've never had 3M-90 come loose, no matter how tight I pull it.

Sounds to me, like 'you haven't taken the time to master the use of it.'

It's obvious that you've never used 3M-90. If you had, you would know how easy it is to avoid getting glue on the top-side of the slate.

But, it makes you look better to try to discredit me.

Sure do. Works great. Has an adjustable spray nozzle. Makes it easy to control the spray pattern. Use a cardboard shield, to catch over-spray. But, if you take proper care, there is very little.

Ha! Funny.

Have you ever used 3M-90? It holds every bit as strong as 3M-10.

I will agree that 3M-77 will not hold up. You might get away with it on a bar box, but not strictly edge-glued...

I have used Weldwood on bed cloth, though it is not my typical practice. I prefer 3M-90.



I agree. To avoid having the facings drop, the surfaces need to be properly prepped, and you need to...

It's a 70's model Valley. Never heard of one with a 3 piece slate. If that were to be true, I would guess that it would have been a fully custom job. I'd better guess that the owner is clueless.

The easiest way to tell is by the color. Brunstone is more of a brownish gray color. On the bottom side, you may even see it marked with "BS". Slate is more of a bluish gray color.

Still unsure?...

Starrett 98-12 levels are on Ebay all of the time. I've never paid more than $130 for one. I own 6. I also own (2) 98-18's, a 98-8, and a 98-4.

The 98-12 is the most ideal for leveling a pool...

Quite possible. I've only worked on a few of them. Never paid much attention to the finer details, only the 'National' name. The design is distinct.
